Personal Insurance a Necessary Evil or Waste of Money?

Insurance coverage may be construed as a necessary evil, especially when unexpected challenges occur. For example, most states require some form of mandatory automobile insurance with required minimum levels of coverage. No one plans on being in an automobile accident, but having the coverage helps negate some of the liability costs associated with the occurrence. Conversely, insurance may be purchased voluntarily, i.e., life, disability, umbrella/personal liability, etc. There are many different types of insurances available and for specific needs. The availability of insurance-auto, home, life, disability, commercial, long term care, etc., are a few types available and help mitigate the cost should a fortuitous event transpire.

Personal Accident and Health Insurance in Ireland, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017 - New Study Released

LogoThe Irish personal accident and health insurance segment registered the highest growth decline in the Irish insurance industry during the review period (2008-2012). The segment fell from EUR1.3 billion (US$1.9 billion) in 2008 to EUR1.1 billion (US$1.4 billion) in 2012, at a review-period compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -4.3%. The decline was attributed to the slowdown in health insurance, the largest category in the segment with 78.8% of written premiums in 2012. While travel insurance was the only category to register positive growth during the review period, at a CAGR of 7.4%, its support was limited due to its low segment share. The anticipated implementation of Solvency II by European countries in 2016 will raise capital requirements for Irish insurance companies. Smaller insurers are expected to find it difficult to meet these requirements, leaving them open to be acquired by larger companies, resulting in further consolidation in the segment over the forecast period (2012-2017).
